Brand New In Box Plate Current Matched Pair Sovtek 5881WXT Vacuum Tubes (2 tubes included)

The Sovtek 5881WXT is one of the most popular 5881 vacuum tubes. The 6L6WGC is the same exact tube as the 5881 so if your amplifier calls for either, it will work. This tube was built to strict military specifications and is based on the famous vintage Soviet 6P3S-E (Russian designation for 5881) and will provide a beautiful rich and sparkly tone. These come stock in many amplifiers like Fender Carvin, etc.

Matching & Testing

Matched with in 10% or less by Plate Current and General Mutual Transconductance. Plate Current matching is the end all be all when it comes to matching, it is by far the most important. 

Double-tested for Gm, Ip, Shorts, Leaks, Gas on a Triplett 3444, Space-Tech Easy Tube Tester or Maxi-Matcher. All of these testers bring tubes up to their full operating voltage and also check for plate current (Ip) as well as General Mutual Transconductance (Gm).
